Eldin Ricks, Book of Mormon resources, Book of Mormon concordance


Eldin Ricks devoted his career to a study of the scriptures. In addition to spending thirty-six years teaching and inspiring students at BYU, he wrote many books and articles about the scriptures--especially materials intended to help others study the scriptures, such as his Combination Reference, often known as the "Ricks Ready Reference," and editions of the Book of Mormon intended to make reading and studying the book easier (his Fireside Editions and Wide Margin Edition). But one project that he worked on for much of the last twenty years of his life was uncompleted at his death in 1992--his concordance to the LDS scriptures.
